Family/Systemic Therapy

Family/systemic family therapy is one of the major evidence based therapeutic approaches used in the United Kingdom. The term refers to a range of psychological interventions for individuals, couples and families based on systemic concepts and theory, and designed to help people make changes in their thinking, behavior and understanding in order to relieve distress, improve the quality of important relationships, and make positive changes in their lives. For a family, it provides a safe setting and a trained therapist to:

Sometimes one or two family meetings can be enough to help a family find their strengths; sometimes difficulties are complex and families may need a longer period of therapy to find the things that work for them.

People often think of family/systemic therapists as working with family groups, but they also work with couples and individuals.
